It randomly stops working at times for whatever reason.

Works very inconsistently.

Very useful feature that Reddit hid behind a subscription. Happy the developer integrated support for redesign, sometimes the extension has some hiccups but it seems to work well now. If you use Reddit on a regular base, this is a very recommended must-have extension.
